Rotate All Windows - Secondary image moves to centre upon rotate

When synchronising the view of two tabs, rotating with "rotate all windows" checked results in the viewpoint of the secondary image (i.e. the image that is not actively being rotated) moving to the centre, thus breaking the synchrony. If that is not clear, hopefully the below steps clarify.

1. Open a file twice, in two different tabs.
2. Window >> Arrange >> Tile all vertically/horizontally.
3. Window >> Arrange >> Match all.
4. Select the zoom tool and make sure "Zoom all windows" is checked. Make sure "scroll all windows" is checked on the hand tool as well.
5. Zoom in on the image (in either of the tabs) anywhere away from the centre. The view should be synchronised with the other tab.
6. Using the rotate tool, rotate the view just slightly so the view barely changes.
7. The view location of the other image, which ought to be synchronised, changes to the centre of the image (I have not measured this precisely but it seems to be the centre as far as I can tell)

I am guessing this is not intended. It is certainly a hindrance if you want to lock the view of two tabs in synchrony no matter how you change the view of either one of them.
